  1. Cheryl Zahner

    I’m very impressed by the quality of the pictures and video the sound the microphone I absolutely love I only wish there was a way to charge it without having to take it off the mount.

    I’m really quite amazed. I purchased the Orbi 4g LTE modem-router for non-cable WiFi connection and matched the Orbi to 4 Arlo Essential security cameras. Should work, right? Never did anything like this before. Like so many of these electronic combinations that I’ve theorized about in the past, I assumed this wouldn’t work either. I talked to several advisors – Orbi technicians, Arlo community contributors. Everyone said it should work. And it did!!!! Amazing!!The Orbi LBR20 was a bit of a challenge. The Obi app was skittish … worked sometimes, sometimes got stuck. The password used to set-up my Orbi account (Netgear) was not the same as the password needed to activate the Orbi modem-router for Internet connection; the Orbi password is printed on the label at the bottom of the Orbi unit … Oh, that password.PureTalk (really AT&T) indicated that they had coverage for my barn’s Zip Code but could not guarantee the Sim card would work with Orbi LBR20 … not quite the confidence booster I needed. Ok … so brave as I am, I purchased the PureTalk Sim card and a 6 Gig data plan.After everything arrived, I first tried to connect the Orbi wireless modem-router to the Internet using the Orbi app as instructed. Nothing automatic here. After several tries, the Orbi app asked for the APN number of my Internet service provider. What’s an APN for goodness sake? Googled “PureTalk APN” and came up with “RESELLER”. I entered “RESELLER … then my PureTalk phone number as the only User ID I knew and then my PureTalk password. No contact and no Internet. Frustration!! The next day, I called PureTalk and asked for the APN number, user ID and password. After transferring through 4 different technical service associates, I received the information (APN = RESELLER, User ID = Not set up yet, Password = Not set up yet). So, I entered “RESELLER” and nothing else (no User ID and no Password). Success!! Internet access!!! Oh, so you don’t need a password in this case!! But … I was now connected to the Internet through a Orbi 4g LTE wireless modem-router … no cable. Once I got the password and APN right, Orbi activated as promised.The next step was to see if the Arlo Essential WiFi cameras would connect to the Orbi LBR20 and then connect to the Internet. The Arlo app was needed to activate the cameras. The Arlo app worked more reliably and consistently than the Orbi app. One by one, each of the Arlo Essential cameras activated. I could see my home office on each of the cameras. Amazing!!! What vanity looking at myself on all four cameras!!! Still, this was at home … and not 25 miles away … in the middle of nowhere. To be safe … I purchased two antennas to attach to the Orbi (not provided in the Orbi box), just in case the Orbi needed the extra help in capturing the wireless signal in the rural Midwest. The Orbi had no problem at home. Every WiFi device in the house wanted to connect to the Orbi … I had to resist. But would the same happen at the barn?I unplugged everything and transported the Orbi and the Arlo Essential cameras to the barn. Located the Orbi 14 feet above ground. Plugged it in. Immediate Internet connection!!! You’ve got to be kidding!!! Installed the Arlo cameras. Each of the cameras … one by one … immediately linked to the Orbi … just like at home. You’ve got to be kidding!! Now … 25 miles away with no cable … I have the views as shown below.There are still questions. The jury is still out. What will the battery life be for each of the cameras be? I fully charged the cameras yesterday; today they are at 92-94 %, though was experimenting with features a lot yesterday. The WiFi signal from the Orbi to the Arlo cameras appears strong. The barn is wood frame with steel siding. Two cameras show four bars and two show two. One of the cameras showing two bars showed four bars yesterday. I may need to reposition the cameras. So … everything is still new. We’ll see.

    I like this camera I do not use base station as it is set up off my property i use irlt to monitor my horse Gives me peace of mind to be able to check on my equine friend when i can not get out there

  4. Jerry Richardson

    The camera arrived with the battery charge of about 70%. Very pleased. The only 4 star rating was because the night camera picked up a small animal but couldn’t make out what it was due to clarity. It did indicate it was an “animal.” It was a raccoon, squirrel, armadillo, or skunk. The spot light frightened it and it ran off. Wish I could tell what it was.

  5. Michael X H

    Bought this package when it was on sale during the prime day. Shipped quickly and installation was very easy – I was able to get it up working in less than an hour! It works well with my old Android phone even, and gives good warning when a motion is detected! Love it

  6. Amazon Customer

    I was more focused on the doorbell but decided to add on the cameras for extra coverage. Very surprised at how easy they were to install and the features like 2 way talk. Night vision is excellent!

  7. Stephanie Estrada

    We already had the arlo pro and wanted to add more cameras, we bought two of these and love them. Love the description of animal , car or persons. The spot light was a added bonus and perfect for the front of our house and over the garage. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of video as well. A must have arlo camera.

  8. Jenni

    These cameras are great once you can get them connected. Mine were awful and took so many attempts to connect. Then about 6 weeks in they stopped working. Eventually I found a phone number I could call and the tech support told me that my cameras will not work because the software is out of date. In order to update the software you need to pay an additional yearly fee. The software update is required for your cameras to work so you are trapped and have to fork over the money or you have dead cameras.

  9. Mel

    Very happy with my inside and outside cameras, I will definitely be buying more! I did have to buy the smart hub to hook my cameras up to because I didn’t have 2.4g I had 5g. Very happy with my purchase.

  10. Mitzi

    This camera has made me feel much safer and sound at night. I time it to arm and disarm daily with one scheduled time on my phone. The app is very easy to use. Great video footage. Worth the money.
